    From baseball to Wall Street, stories abound about the ways data

    From baseball to Wall Street, stories abound about the ways data and analytics change the games people play for fun and profit. Professor Thomas H. Davenport, executive Jeanne G. Harris and business researcher Robert Morison explain how companies can use good data and rigorous analytical inquiry to inform major decisions and processes. They guide the reader through an instructive road map to rerouting organizational DNA into an analytical mind-set. Their book is significantly less stuffy, dry and boring than it could be; no matter how intricate the authors get about spreadsheets, modeling software or analytical wonks, they always add some humor to leaven the reading. And that illustrates one of their crucial themes: “Analytical leaders” must always place people above data and pursue goals that truly matter to their firms and stakeholders. Every business has data that it uses poorly or doesn’t use at all, and every business could employ and retain more analytical thinkers; on both counts, this book can help. getAbstract suggests it to executives and managers looking for quantitative methods that lead to qualitative results.
